Mayor's Report. 



To flic citizens 'if Uk ViUi i>f Rittlaiid: 

1 hnvf the honor to maki' report for tln' fisfal year 
ending Dcwmlwr ai, 1912. 

FINANCIAL 

During this fisi'iil year, Jt.s hiTotoforc, v;v linvi-; paid 
our interest and sinking fnnil ohligalions, and tin? net 
bondi.'d delrt of the city has hccn doivreased by the amount 
of $18,480.44, for which the voters are to be eongmt- 
nlnted, etc., hut as a matter of hu-A, rather than oi' iignri-s, 
we have failed to pay our necessary running expenses 
and dlseharge our absoUite obligations as they became 
due. 

A reference to thi> n-()orl of the treasurer shows 
that, after dedueting tin- mnouiit beio)ierin>f lo 1he de- 
partruont of .streets and sidewalks, we Imd $193. :10 less 
eash in the general fund at the end than at the begin- 
ning of the year, besides a ifsT.Odi) oiitslaudiiifr 1t'iti]>orary 
loan warrant. This makes the ajipareut delieieney Tor 
the year !|!7,l!t!>..10. So far as known to the Board of 
Fiiianee no hills havf been earriwl over this year, exeepf 
the elaini of Burton & ("reed for the eonstnnition of 
the enlvert on North -Main Street, whieh is in litigation 
and is can-ied from the year 1911, and the temporary 
h)an warrant alwve referred to. There were earried 
over, however, from the year 1911, and paid during the 
year 1D12, bills pa.vable from the general fond amount- 
ing to ^1,161.11: so that the real defieit for Ihe year 
1912 is !i(fi,0:l8.in. Nor is this by any means the first 



OITT OP BUTLAND

men. By the same itLstrument t]u-> mayor and board of 
aldermen are juade tin- equivalent body of the seloet- 
men of the towns. Neither the tnayor nor the board of 
aldennen, severalJy or in their joint capacity, have 
Iberofore an.\' lr>gal eontrol over the commii3!iioner of 
I)nblic works in the administration of the department of 
streets and bigbivays. With this absolute power ought 
to go the ftdl res)ioiisibility Ini- the adminislration of 
this depai-ttiient. .U the (3|>etii!ig of the sea.son of 1911 
the street eoininis.sioner detenuined (o try the e.v])eriment 
of using motor yn.wcr rather than horsea for moving 
materials in this department. Tiiis determination, as 
1 understood it at that time, was with the approval of a 
large majonty. perha]»s of all, tlie meudx-rs of the eity 
ennncil, and an antomobiie iruek was ai'i-ordiiigly pur- 
chased at an expense of between five and six thousand 
dollars. For the year Iflll no a|.propriation wa.s made 
for highways e.\eept the twenty per cent apjiropriated 
hy law. As the truek was expected to last for several 
yeai-s, at the time of its purchase it was deteruiiiied 
to divule tlie ptireiiuse money between the years liJll 
and 1912. During the year 1911. however, so much was 
expended upon highways that the appropriation was 
exhausted without i>aying anything upon the pureiuise 
money of the tniek. During the year 1912 no appro- 
priation has been made to higliways except the twenty 
Jier cent approjiriated by law. From this appropriatioli 
I>ayiiuMJt for ihi- motor truck has lieen made, together 
with siTch other work as it was possible to do and keep 
within the appi-opriatinn, The motor truck is still on 
hand, and reported lo be in good condition, except the 
tires which must be iTnewed before it ean be used. 
\otwitb.stauding th.> fact (hat ttie renewal of the tires 
involves a considerable expense-, I am of the opinion that

wafer uauKeniis, bail caused Iheir tea ketlles, etc.. to 
tieeuiiie di.seoloreil and show a dejuisit from the water 
upon boiling, even that il had injuriously effected tlifir 
health. 1 eannni think this ejui he true. At least sinee 
June 11112 all till- blejieh used ha.s been weighed, it has 
then been tlioroughly mixed and introduced iulo the 
cans] fhrouph which the water i3ows for a long distance 
over a .stony bottom hefort- entering the n^sers'oir; during 
this timo the water has been measured daily and the 
ainoiint of bh-aeli used has never e.xeeedetl one jjrain to

iiiade the water any bctte-r it r-ertninly has not made 
it any worse.

and extension. 

SEWKKS. 

In this department you will note the recommenda- 
tion of the commissioner of publie works with respect 
to new conatruetion. There are also other ijnarters of 
the eity in which sewers ought to be built. It is ilifiieult, 
however, to see how mueb work of this character can 
bo done and paid for without a raise in tin- tax levy. 

PUBLIC SAFETY. 

In the death of Mr. Chamberlin, the commissioner 
of this department, the city has lost a failliful amf 
mo.<i( eflicicnt ofticial. 

To the reeommendations contained in the report of 
the present eommi-sKioner T wi.^ib to add two of those of 
om- of his predeeessors, Mr. Patch, namely : tlie employ- 
ment of an electrician and the providing in the city half 
of reasonably decent facilities for a lockup or jail.' 

LIGHTS. 

This is an important department of the eity and 
has received eousiderablc atti-ntion during the past year. 
The existing contract between the eity and the Rutland 
TJadway Light & Power Company expires April 1, 1913. 
During the year some controvT-sy aro«e between the 
board of finance and tlie Rutland Railway Light & Power 
Company in respect to the light bi!].=!. and in it.s adjust- 
ment a cireuii of magnetite lamps was insjalh-.! in the 
bnsines.s section of the city. In this adjnstnieut it further 
appeared that the present equipment for street lighting,

Report of the Commissioner of 
Public Works. 



Ti> till llomrable City Council: 

(Tpnlleiiieii — The I'olloH-ing ia h stati'iiwnt (if (lio 
work (lone tjy llii> itrjifirlitH'Mt of I'lihlii- Works liiiririg 
the year UU2. 

STREETS. 

The iiierwisiiig traffic niH'f.ssitates more street wi.rk 
each year. However, as quite a number of the busier 
thoroughfares have already Ix'en inaeiidaiiiizod and as we 
get a Blight iiierease yearly in the aiiiouut of the avail- 
able funds we are able gradually to increase the total 
length of improved roadways. Xevertheln.'is, the atnount 
of money available for construction work this year was 
considerably below the normal : caused by the City pay- 
ing for the jiuto truck from the funds. 

We feel, however, that considering the litnited funds 
we had to spend and the condition of our crusher, we 
have sueceedet! in doing a large amount of work. I 
would liave much j)rcf(?rred 1o purchase a new crusher 
and use a harder stone if your Honorable Body liad 
granted our re<jncst for the necessary money wilh which 
to install a ernsbing plant. Xcitiier of our erusbcrs is 
capable of crushing stone jis fa.st as we can handle it 
with the truck uidcss the haul is un esceptiomilly long 
one. The North ^Inin street crusher is practically worn 
out and the portable is rather small and considerably 
worn. Cousei|uently, in order to carry on the street 
work economically, wc should have a new and larger

crushnr. Wi- also need a now sioni' i|iiai'r,v, but i1 luts 
hwii impossible to find local stmu' equal tn irup n«'k lor 
roaJ-building. 

T liave sent samples from viirinns Icdfrcs in tliii 
vicinity to testing lalioratories. TIk' jvporls from those 
tests indicate- that our q\iarn- on North Main street, 
also several other ledges near here, are not good road- 
building umterial (Except tor use in a deep fill or ns a 
founiktion for a harder surfaciDjj;. The .stone wliieli 
apjwared by the f<>sts to be the best {'or niad-Hnrrariui; 
was taken from the letlgc on North Ohureli street. Two 
laboratm-ios stated tbat it was tlie best stone which had 
been seut to them by anyone from Rutland, 1 would 
recommend flic purcliase of this property at a ti-asonjible 
price. 

1 also reeoauneni! ihe maeadjuiiizint: id.' Spellmaii

manner that the stn-am was tnrne.l sontberly mto the

the new conerete bridgfi. It washed an opening in the 
gravel and bnuhlnrs about three fc-et deep under that 
south abutment from its easterly end westerly about ten 
feet lengthways of the bridge, causing that end of the 
south abutment tn settle down and eraek away from the 
other parts. That break ought to bave Imen repnired 
during the past season, hut owing to the litigation eon-

Respectfully siibniitted. 

F. R. BLANCHARD, 
Commissioner of Public Works. 



Report of the Commissioner of 
Public Safety. 



To the Uonorabh Ciiy Council: 

I respectfully snlimtt the tiiiHiial report of tlif Fire 
aud Police Departaients. 

I was appointed Commissioner of Public Safety 
November 18. 1!)12, to till out llie iiuexpired term of 
the late Jfartiii H. Cbamberliji, 

Our tire loiis the past year, a list of which in 
api>eiuie(3, is the kjwest in many years, being only 
.$11, .■}[)] So, wbieb is fortunate. This lo.s,s can be reclneed 
by the addition to our fifihtin^ i>quii>uient of a cbeniieal 
motor trueli with ii eajmeity of not le.iw I ban two tliirtj'- 
gallon eheuueal tanks, and three inuidred fei't oC bosc: 
Nearly all fires are cbemieal fli-e», so-called, and wlieu 
tliseovered, an alarni will bring a motor trnek much 
fpiieker fluin a horse-drawn vehicle, regardless of dis- 
tance. To reach a Are in its infancy is of great import- 
ance. Chemiejils are ready for ti.si' jis moii as tbe truck 
reaches the scene of tbe tire, and tlie tire is smollicred 
by tlieir use with much less damage than by water. 

I respeel fully reeonunend tiie sale of the old fire 
engine, am] the imrrlinse of a nuHjcrn motor trnek. To 
maintain one pair of borscs and a driver costs approxi- 
mately 000 0(1 per year; tlie avi-rajjc cost lo maintain a 
motor truck woul<l not exceed 0(1 per year. I 

recommend this e.xcbange in tiie interest of economy 
and effSeieticy. Let us hope that in the near future our 
tiuaiii-es may permit of such an arrangement. 



AXNTAI. RKI'iHiT 



Many largi/ tires ari' iti a largv iin'iisui-c llic iliivi-t 
iTsiill of delay in railing ovit tln' (l(']tartm(*ut. Too luauy 
pi'iipli' !)tti-tiii>t to figlit tlii-ir own lirfs. 01' eourso tliia 
is quitv pmpL'i' aftiT tlioy Imvo culled the dcpartnieiit, 
but it is f j^equently due to a fear of having tlieir homes 
or property rioodcd ivitii wat«r. We are reasonably 
well supplied with hand eiiemieal extiuguishers, whitili 
render good serviee in h sniall fir*\ Over Tifl'/J of tlie 
fires in 1912 were suiotluTrtl with the use of our present 
eheiideal e(|nip!uent. 

This report was not made up until after January 
20, ujider wliieh date, upon request, your hoard 

appropriahni (10 in improve the fire alarm sysleni 

whieh is in had repair. It is hoped (his amount will 
plaee this system in fii-st ehiss eondition. It is ex]jeeted 
we will he oMiged to renew ahout ten m'th-H of the wires. 
We liope this will elimiiiMti- the t'reijUfnt sitif,'h- hlasts 
by the fire whistle, which have been the cause of a great 
deal of annoyanee to the citizen as well as to members 
of the department. 

11 YD HA NTS 

The liyclrants aie all in good condition. A cand'id 
iuapeetion was nuulf duritifr flu' monlh of Deeember, 
1912. imd all i'£i|>s wi-iu^ niiiovi^d and greased. Tliis 
inspection is of iiiquirtatn'e as at times il is loun»l that 
negleet has caused the threads to mat, so that the 
hydrntits are opt-ned with ffrcat difficnlly. Tiir threads 
should he greased at least twice i-arli year. A vigilant 
vvaleh is kept of all hydrants during the eold period, 
to prevent freezing,

numhers Burlington City Poliee Department eosts 
approximately ifil.OO per capita, while the Kutland 
department eosta less than S3 cents per capita. We 
tliink thi.s a splendid showing fitianeially. We are of 
the opinion that our police force shuuid be inereased by 
tbe addition of at least one regular patrolman. We 
have found it neeessaiy in the past year to employ 
oiie special offieer for night duty a greater portion of 
the time. We have Iteen fortunate in being able to 
find a man wlio Ls willing to serve half-time. With the 
addition of an extra man, t!ie police Ijeadipiarters 
would have a man on dnty there to atiswer ealls at any 
time, day or night. Tliis we consider of importanee, 
espeeialiy to the peo()Ie in the residential section who 
frequently desire tJie services of an officer and are un- 
able to get in toui.'h with the department.

Commissioner of Public Safety, 



Report of the City Attorney 



To I he Honorable City Coun-cil: 

In addition to my rejiort of last year, which may 
be substantially made a part of this report, ibe follow- 
ing suits were bronglit in whifib the City is interested. 

Ranberg v. (^ity of Rutland ; this was a suit to re- 
cover damages on acconnt of th»^ flowajre of plaintitf's 
land from alleged defective drainage of the publie. high- 
way. This ease was settled for a sum less than the 
estimated eost of trial, and discontinueti under a stip- 
ulation whereby the plaintiff obligates himself to eare 
for the sitnation in the future and save the City harm- 
less on aeeount thereof. 

Creed and Burton v. the City of Rutland ; this suit 
was brought to recover an amount elaimed under a con- 
tract for e4)nstruetion work. It was tried at the Sep- 
tember Term of the Rutland County Court, judgment 
rendered against the City, exceptions taken and the 
I'ause passed to the Supreme Court where it is now 
[lending. 

During Mr, V. W. Clement's administration as 
mayor a contract, approved by the Board of Aldermen, 
was entered into hy him for the jiurehase of the EUen 
Rcioni'y farm, so ealled, in IVIendoii. Mr. Clement believed 
that the terms of the contract had not been complied 
wi\h hy the other party thereto and refused to take 
the laud. The administrator of the estate of Ellen 
Rotmey brought suit at taw to recover damages by rea- 
son of Mr. (.Element's alleged failure txi keep his eontraet, 
which suit is now pending in the Rutland County Court, 

(8)

ATSfPTDAL RKI'ORT 



The suit has been cnjoioyi) ii.v thf t'oui't of ( 'luuu'iTv 
and the (luestions involved are yet to be lieai'<l. 

The City Charter was jiinymlpcl hy the Piihlic 8<'r- 
vice Commission in aeeordant'e witli the pnivisionK of 
an xVet of. the Legislature in 1910, providing that the 
City Council coald eoudemn land within and witliout 
tlie City to he used in conneetiou with its water supply. 
It was tUouftlit hy some tlint the law of 1910 in llud. 
behalf was nneouKtitutional and that a test ease luiglit 
be brought to have the qut'stion decided. Thin was not 
done, but at the rfqucst of Mayor Howe I dniftcil hu 
act embodying: the same provisions in regard to tlie 
water supply and its a ppiii'te nances, wliieli was intro- 
duced at the present session (if the legislature hy our 
City Representative, Mr. Iliilett, which was passed and 
settles the ((uestion without reeonrsi- to litigation. 1 
nuiy add that sinei* the passage of this aet the Supreme 
Court has advised the Governor that the law of 1H10 
above rr-ferred to was uneonstitutional. 

Thf City has from tiniL- to time contributed money 
towards defraying expenses of an annual carnival. Th^re 
did not seem to hf any lawful authority for appropria- 
tion in that behalf and at the recpiest of .Mayor Howe 
T prepared an act authorizing the Aldermen to appro- 
priate money for sueh purpose, provided the City so 
voted at a meeting duly warned in that behalf. This 
act was presented to the present session of ihe Ije^ishi- 
ture by our City Representative and hecaine a law. 

An aet was introduced at the present session af 
the Legislature providing that land acquired by piir- 
eliasp or cimdemnation hy one municipality wilhin the 
territory of anotht-r shall be suhjcet to taxation. This 
act, if passed, would render our entire water supply, 
acqueduct, reservoii's, and all improvements connected 
therewith, amounting in value to many thousands of 



CITY UF KUTL.'V.ND 



dollars, subject to taxation by the towns in which they 
are sitnated. 

At the request of JIayor Howe, I twjk measures to 
oppose the passage of this act and the legislative com- 
mittee to which the act was referred, reported that the 
same should be amended so that water supply, resei'- 
voirs, aqueducts, \u]w lincM, nuichhiery, apparatus and 
ail improvements connected tliiTcvvith necessiiry for the 
protection, maintenance and operation of the same 
shall be excepted from tlie provisions of the act, and if 
any act is passed in that regard I think it will be snb- 
stantially in that form. 

Respectfully submitted, 

P. M. MELDON, 

City Attorney.

Report of the Board of Health 



To ilie Honorable Cit;/ Council'. 

Yoiif Board of Health make the foUowing report. 
We Iwlieve that there sliould be a system for collecting 
garbage, inftugiiT-ated hy the eity. The former Health 
Officer spent cotisiderahle time and eorrespomled %vith 
many Boards of Health, relative to this subject, and 
from information thus ohtaiiied, our Board formulated 
an ordinance, which we recommended to your Honorable 
Boanl, for (.'Onsideralion and adoption. 

We hope this subject will be taken up in the near 
future. 

We also urgently reeommend, that the sale of meat, 
fruit, vegetables, milk and eream, and the inspection of 
meat and meat products, he considered. Our Board for- 
mulated some ordinimees pertaining to this matter and 
refeiTed them to your Honorable Board for action. We 
still feel that this subject should have early considera- 
tion, and some action taken accordingly. 

Th<'re have been some unusual exj>en.<»es, due to a 
threatened epidemic of Small Pox, and we are happy 
to sa.v that the situation was handled sueeestsfully and 
no serious outbreak took place We found the very com- 
fortable and comnimtious Isolation Hospital of great 
advanlage in earing for these eases. 

We still recommend that something more perma- 
nent sliould be done, in the way of securing better water 
for the City of Rutland, as the use of the bleach, as at 
present applied, should be regarded as only a temporary 
makeshift. 



CITY OP EUTLANn 



12a 



In the spring of 1911 the Board made an exhaus- 
tive investigation of the water supply, including its 
sources and recommended among «ther things, in a 
eommuuication to Mayor Clemenl;, that the City acquire 
the North Branch of Cold River, nnd conduct the water 
into our system. 

The Board still maintains the same view of the 
situation. 

Respectfully j^ubmitted, 

CHABLE.S A. (iALE, M. D., Pres. 
FRANK H. CHAPMAN, 
FRANK D. WHITE, 
P. H. GEBHARDT, M. 1)., Sec y.

not feel justified in shortening the list, the gifts of 2!>

ciation. 

BINDING. 

230 vohimes have been re-hound this last year as 
against 4:?4 in 1911. The buying of nearly all fiction 
and juvenile books as far as possible in re-infon-ed 
binding has been plainly felt this year, also 1,010 liooks 
as against 1,273 in 1911 were repaired at tJie library 

ItEGISTBATlOK. 

Of the (i40 new cards issued during 1912, 34;-! or 
more than half the number were issued to children, and 
it is interesting to note that the circulation of non-fiction 
in the juvenile department is :^1 per cent as against 2() 
in the main library. Tlie rtfory Hour heli)s to stimulate 
the non-fietion reading among young peojile. 

READING AND REFERENCE DETARTMENT, 

In the main reading and reference department, an 
imperfect registration shows that 7,039 people as 
against 7,298 made use of this room during the year. 

BULLETINS.

Five years ago the city was caDcii upon to erect a 
new school building and to furnish additional accom- 
modations for the Ilitrh School. The new Iniilding made 
[lossihie Ihe (.■onsolidal ion of six sidiools formerly housed 
in luo antiquated and dilapidated buildings and to 
meet the gmwtl! in tlial si-ction of the city; the enlarge- 
ment of tlie High .School Huililing was necessitated hy 
the i'a|iid growth of that school. 

Since that time the population of the city has in- 
ercaserl nearly fifteen hundivd and the school ein-ollment, 
ahouf three Iinndred. The greatest increase in the city 
in po]ndalimi and in hiiilding operations has bepn in 



AKKUAI. REPORT 



the vidnity of tho Liucoln School whir-h has now become 
greatly ovprerowded. 

The School Board at its meeting in December in- 
stnicted the .Committee on School Buildings to invest- 
igate the noed of additional school accommodations, to 
secnre estimati's of cost and to rt'iiort to the riiSI Hoard. 

The Committee on Buildings carefully investigated 
this matter and recommended an addition of two rooms 
at the Lincoln Biukling ami the fitting up of one addi- 
tional room in the Pine Street Building. The estimated 
post of those improvements, based upon different plane 
sid>mitte<l. ranged from about $8,000 to $1^.(100. 

The fidl Board unanimously adopted the above 
report and voted that the city be ashed to issue $iri,non 
school bonds to carry ont the rccomincndation of the 
Board and 1o make additional repairs upon the heating 
plants in tlie Fine Street and the Longfellow School 
buildings. 

TMK OB.IIXT OF I'l'BUC EDTTCATIOK, 

Every state and city should Ix- vitally interesti'd in 
the public Kchools. In fact the public school in Vermont 
i.s a child of the State receiving a large share of its 
support from and to a large degree still eontrotlwl by 
the S?tate. The ohjeet of public school instruction is to 
improve the eitizensiiip and 1o make life richer and fuller 
for all llii' people of llie State. 

The Him of onr schools, theri'fore. siionld !»e to afford 
lhc greatest and fullest advantages to the largest number 
of childrfu of i.'ur city, and so far as practicable offer 
equal at! vantages to al! children. The ipiestion might, 
tlu-refore. be raised whether the hi-1u>oIs in tlii.s city are 
at present doing all in their power 1o help those children 
not intrndiug to I'Uter coUegc in securing honorable and 



crry op etjtland ibt 

remunerative occupations on leaving school, which can 
only be done by putting vocational training upon a par 
with college preparation. 

Respectfully submitted,

The school eeasiis hist .linn' gnve a total of 'All'.i 
children in this city between tho ofres of live and eigli- 
teen yt'ai"s: (his is au iucrease of two inindred eighteen 
over the niiuiher repttrtcd four yeare ago. The enroll- 
ment in the schools iluriiig the lirst Sfnu'si.'r of the mir- 
rent year is scveiity-ninc more than during the siitne 
period hist year. The greatest growth in iio(>ntatit>n and' 
in hiiihling opemtions in the eity (hiring the past live 
years has heen in the vicinity of the Liiit'oln Sehool, 
wiicrc scvrtity new it«clting-honses have Iweti crcctwl, 
thirty-six of which have lieen Iniilt within the ]Mist two 
years. The Linijoln linihiing for sicveral y^trs has heen 
unable to aeeoniiuodate all the pufiils living in that 
vicinity and it has heen neces.sary each year to send 
away from that section to other .sehools an iiicrca.singly 
lart£fi" nmnher of children. Thi> t'ita' Street hnihling 
is likewise overcMOwded ami the same pi'ocess of scatter- 
ing the selidoi children has been rejieated year after 
year. This Itnilding wa.s teiiijiorarily relieved by abol- 
ishing the Kindergarten School and nsing tlu- rntnn thus 
vacated for the grades. 

The incuibci-s of the Hciard of Si'hfol ( 'oTumis-sioners 
are uiianinious in recoiunn'n<ling that an a(hlilioii of two

Street, the Longfellow and the Watkins Avenm- School 
buildings. 

I heartily indorse the reconiniendiition of tlic Board 
and believe that such improvenjeuts should he completed 
so that one new scbool could be opened next September 
in each of the Pine Street and Lincoln School bnihJiugs. 
The School Board also finds extensive repaii-s necessary 
upon the beating plants in the Pine Street and the Long- 
fi-llow Sciionl bnildings ami that tlii'.se improvenienls can 
not he tiiade without an additional appropriation from 
the city. The Boai'd, therefore, appeals to the voters of 
the city for an extra appropriation to meet Uiese unusual 
demands. 

FINANCES 

fn or<b*r to erect and equip the Dana Buibling and 
the High School addition the School Board was oblige»l 
to expend ten thousand dollars in addition to the amount 
reali?:ed fi'om the bond issue. This created a deficit in 
the School Department of more than five thousand dol- 
lars. To elear up this deficit under the new <'harter 
restrictions and to provide for the increased cost of 
running the si'hmds occasioned by the rapidly increasing 
.school i)0]nibition, the bigli cost of living and the uiore 
exacting demands of the public, recpiired on the part of 
tile School lloard the most watchful atiention and the 
exercise of the greatest ecnnntny in eoiulnctiug the 
schools. The Kindergarten Sehools wei-i' abolished thus 
disiH-nsing with the services of four teachers and doing 
away with the necessity of renting outside rooms for 
thase schools: the mendiersbip of each school was in- 
ereased to the capacity of tin- room, to prevent the open- 
ing of new sehools: the extension of work in the new 
departtnents and the hegiruiing of new enterprises were 
deferred. Thus the deficit lias been eliminated anil the 
School Department plaeeti upon a soinid (iiiaueial basis.

VACATION SCHOOL, 

A Continuation School was eondnetcd for four weeks 
at the close of the Spring Term for the benefit of pupils 
in tile intermediate and gramnuir guides who had uof 
been regularl.\' pi-omoted. 

Special emphasis was given to English and arith- 
mefie; geography nn,\ history received attention iuei- 
denlaliy as supplementary reading. Fifty-nine pupils 
were enrolled and forty-two were promoted to the next 
higher grades, and ahnost without exception these pupils 
have held their grade and made good in their studies. 

A most successful Convention of the Vermont State 
Teachers' Association was held in this city October 24- 
26th. About eh>ven hundred teaehei-s were registered 
and a still larger number attended the meetings. The 
holding of sueh meetings in this city in the future is 
rendered easier hy the completion of a suitable and com-

Tlie piiiilif High School \h often Hpoken t\t aw tlie 
"People's College": its ohjeet is to develop and train 
the children for hcttcr eil izensliip iirifl for nioi'e eomph'te

people, its aim shotdd he t*> offer, a.s far as practi)'Hhh\

enter the sehooj and to place cniphaKis upon those studioa' 
that coiitrihnte moHf in attainiiitr the ohjecis for wliieli 
the Mciiool was estahlished. 

With no desire to delraet from the good work at 
present hciug done in any department of our Tlifjh 
School OP to minimize the imjiorlanee of any study 
taught, I feel it my duty to nuike three recommendations 
in reganl to the si'opc of the work that should he attempt- 
ed in the future. 

1, liasing my judgment upon the results of examina- 
tions made in other schools for this purpose, upon my 
own ohservntion of thi? work in Iligli Sehoohs in general 
and upon my experience of thirty years in jiulilie school 
work in New Englnn<l 1 am convinced that pupils in 
general up to the time of entering High School have 
not the mental development neee»tsary to thoroughly 



riTY OV Bl'TLAND 



ITU 



master any study and thai most pupils are hetler ipmii- 
ticd in reading, writing, aritlnnetii^ and technical Eng- 
lish grammar on entering, than on leaving, High Mehool. 
J hclievc. tiicrefore, that greater emphasis should ht? 
given to thos<' studies in our High Seliool than at jirescnt 
espeeially in the two lower classes so that those pupils 
who iiuiy not he ahle to eomplete the entire course and 
gruilnate from the sciiool may hei'onie more proficient 
in those most iMi|)orlant hrauehes of study. 

2. The expensi' of maintaining the High Sehool 
in this eity is ahout one hnndre<l iloUars jtcr day - this 
does not inelnde the inierest on the investmeiit for the 
plant or the hK-is of the ju'oduetix e lalior of foni- hundred 
students. At presi?nt ten sehool days are largely or 
wholly given each year to examinations and rceord- 
ing marks. 1 helieve the henetits derived from su'df 
examinations do not warrant sueh a loss of time and ex- 
penditur-e of mom-y and that in the future the periods 
of I'xaminations should he le.s.sened or that tfu; mid- 
year exandnations shoidd lie aliolishcel. 

3. 'I'iie m(»st reliahle liata ohtainahle fi'oai tlu' 
HflufJational department of Ihi.s State and from tic 
United States govertutienl show.s that less than 2r> ]irr 
cent of school children ever enter a High Sehool, that 
less than 10 per ecnt graduate from the High Sehool 
and that le.»w than '' per cent ever enter college. I am 
conviucetl that we owe it to the youth cd' thi.s city to make 
our High Sehool of the greatest {lossible aasistance tti 
those pupils who artf not intendiiig to enter eoHegc atui 
that greater attention than at present should he given 
in preparing sueh pupil to secure and hold honorable 
and remunerative positions on leaving the High School.

Report of the Principal of the 
' High School. 



Tf D. 11. Ltnlu . Suitfrhtii )idi;nl of Sch»nh: 

lli'ri'vvilti is idvscHti'i) my t'oiirtli ruport of the Uut- 
l«mi lligii S(.'hool r.H- till- year Felt. 1912 to Feb. l!)i:i. 

At firet it was my intention, Mlowlng the i-ustoiu 
of foriiu'i- yrni-w, to ri'citc the i^enei-Hlly sutisfaetory 
eonditiou of the high ik;hooi in work, in iliseipline, ami 
in its vHtions activities, not-withstanding the fact that 
no eritieism of it has heen nmtle to nie liy eitliei- the 
Snpennteiiileut or the Hoard of L'o)iiniis.sioners, This 
fact, arguing, as it does, general satLsfaetion with the 
liigh sehool ai'eined to make sneh a reeittd uiau'eeasary, 
Tiiere is, however, one thing to whicli J wish to eall 
attention, to what may he termed a ^-owing eiiange ot 
the piipila toward a higlier and better (iiiality of work. 

riepetofore, there has heen too notieeabh' a dt>sire 
to "get through," to liave done with seliool, to graduate 
and 1o he off to college, or to go ont into the w^orld — tfl 
MSf a i-onnneneement j^hrase — witli too little serions 
tlmught for the fitnetss of the prejiaratiun. This year 
there is evident, to liini who will see, a growing desire 
to do better work in order, HOiuetinies, perhaps mostly, 
to he able to take up .subaeriuent ta!?ks witli more ehanee 
of Huece^, but sometimes, certainly, because it seemed a 
good thing to do work of a higli degree of exeellenee. 
This gi'owing desire for a higlier quality of work is due 
partly to the influence of our successful boys and girls 
in college rh they come back from time to time, partly 



fTTV OF RUTLAND 



183 



to the lioys and girls who are making a s«cces,s in various 
lines of business, and partly to the steady insistence of 
the sehooi it«elf upon good work and its unwearied per- 
sistence in teaching that good work is the oidy right 
kind of work. It has been more than .satisfactory to 
watch this change in the attitude of the pupils of the 
high school toward their work and it gives nie gj'eat 
pleasure to eall your attention to it, for 1 suppose we all 
agree that for a school, as for a man, it is mueh more 
important whiet way it is going than where it stands. 

With the knowledge of this steady growth toward 
better things in the school it is a great sjitisfaction to 
have the information tinit in the improvi-d financial 
condition of the school department the high sr:ihooi will 
share, tmtli in additional teaching force, of which it 
stands in need an<l for waut of which its good work hat; 
been retarded, and also in a larger and hettcr etiuipment, 
particularly in the history and modern language depart- 
ments, an p(|uipment the need.s of which 1 shall prc-ient 
in detail to you in due time. Without seeming too per- 
sislent J onee more express the hojie that the additiunal 
teacher will he a man who can look after the athletics 
as part of his work, thus putting the training m well as 
the chaperoning of the team.'* under the eare of a mem- 
ber of the Faculty, a thing whieh the larger and better 
schools are everywhere doing. I feel very strongly af>ouf 
this and repeat here what I said in my first report, 
four yeai-s ago, that the City owes as mueh as that to 
its boys, particularly sinee mi increased expen.se is in- 
volved in it, 

I implied above that because of iusuffieieut teach- 
ing force and too meager e(|uipnicnt the good work of 
the .sehool has been hindered and while the tcaeher.s. 
knowing the financial situation, have all cheerfully 
labored to keep up a steady improvement in efficiency,

tlic I'i'Siilt has not been at all what they would liki' to 
maki' it. In no placp iu thu school has the result of 
this unfavorahh? coudition been more clearly evident 
thau in tlie work of the special teaclicrs for whieh it 
has been imposHihle tn give the frmloni and spai'f iieede{[ 
for its highest elTeetiveness, and 1 am glad to make 
this appetil in their hehalf. To ask speeial teachers to do 
efl'e<;tive service ami then to i;rowii their work ofl" into 
a corner is fair neither to the teacher, to the work, nor 
to the sehool. Of eoiifse, the droppinir of Algelmi in the 
grades wili hi'l[) next year, somewhat. Imf th;it chiiiige 
affects only the entering or D Class. In the faee of 
thi.s situation what 1 said in niy report last year on 
this point htis added siguiiicanee this yi*ar and thi- 
recommendations I then made, sharper point. Thi- 
renewal of these reeouimendations will be found below. 

{'losel.v eouneeted with this eraniped and liindi-ri'd 
effeetiveness of the speeial teaeiiei's' work — sinee both 
involve waste of money and effort— is the matter of free 
English books in the upper eia8,ses of the high sehool 
to which 1 have always been oppn.sed and against which 
I have steadily protested. There are several reasons 
to he urged again.st it. I content myself with simply 
tHtmiiiif some of them: tl) the expense, constantly in- 
creasing a.s the school increases and the work in English 
grows; C2) the hindrance to the work because of thf 
lack of sufficient hooks; f3) the inconvenience caused 
by the nwessity of redistributing the Englisli tests for 
reviews: (4) the desirability of pupils' <iwning these mas- 
terpieces of English Literature; (5j the unsanitariness 
of soiled or dirty books. 

There are otlier matters that ought to come to your 
attention bnt the narrow limits of a local report pri-- 
etude the mention of them. Besides they may easily

and properly he brought befoi*c you ami the special 
coimiiittees from time to time. 1, however, olfer the 
following specific recommendations: 

1. A drawing room in the basement ample in size 
and adequately ef|uipped with desks to give a fair 
chance to the excellent work in drawing by the present 
teacher of that work. 

2. The control of the domestic science teacher's 
time and the institution of a worthy course in that 
branch of school work or the dropping out of it alto- 
getlier, for the present, on tlie ground of inadequate re- 
turns for the pre-sent outlay. 

3. The appointment of an additional teacher In the 
high school and tiat teacher a man — in the uaterest of 
right athletics — capable of looking after the boys of 
the school in connection with their sports, and that the 
oversight of the athletics be made a part of his school 
wovk. 

4. The inei'case in the school is likely to continue 
as the eity grows and tlie good reputation of the .school 
holds and increa.scs. l''or the next year, however, we 
shall not be seriously hampere<l for space and with an 
additional teacher and the present drawing room to be 
used as a recitation room foi- small classes we shall be 
able to get on very well. 

In conclusion it is not only proper bnt pleasant 
to report to you the satisfaction T have felt, not only at 
the continued confidence of the Board in the present 
management of the high .school but also at the .special 
mark of that confidence given since my last report. I

Report of the Supervisor 
of Music 



To tfatid B. Locke, Supt'rititendcvt nf Schools: 

The foUowiug in my report as to the musical work 
in the schools since January, ldl2. The first occurrence 
outside the regular routine was a creditable recital, 
given by the eighth grade of tlie Abraham Lincoln 
School, this being the second such occasion among the 
grades during the winter term. As work of this kind 
stimulates tlie classes to render their music with greater 
care and beauty these modest recitals are of certain 
value to the pupils, ami the attendance and interest of 
parents and friends of the chihlren are earucstly desired 
on all such occasions. Several classes of the Longfellow 
building joiruMl in giving an entertainment in the High 
School Assembly Hall on the evening of May 15, for the 
benefit of the Teachers' Retiring Fund. A large audi- 
ence gave generous approval of tlte various numliers. 
The music at the annual Memorial Day exercises of the 
grades was courageomily and finely rendered although 
many good singers were absent owing to the untiraelv 
rain storm. 

At the High School emnmencement the orchestra 
rendered the purely instrumental numbers in a grnti Ty- 
ing manner. The choral numbers were arranged For 
several in.strumenfs in addition to the piano. 

Upon the opening of the schools in September the 
voices of all the boys in the eighth and ninlli griides were 
tested and many basses were found. Mnsie has l>een 
written and arranged to meet the needs of these changed 



voiet'8 and a rpal effort made fo interest the hoyn itt 
their new part. 

Rather more rnat(-nal than usual waa found for 
the ordipstra, wliicti held seitii- weekly rehoarsals m \yvep- 
aration of, music for the State Teachers' Couveiition 
when they played at 1hre(! different sessions. Since that, 
time 8tring,s and Bras.s have had .separate weekly in- 
strnetian. Nearly all are beginners so that the music 
innst of necessity be somewhat simple, but we have some 
thoroughly good imisie of that order and most of the 
ydayers are very faithful in Ibeir nttemtain'e and interest 
and their efforts deserve snceesa, 

1 wish that by appealing to pareuis through the 
luetliutii of this report it greater interest might he devel- 
oped in the High School chorus, where the subject is 
fileetive and perhapK not carefully enough considered, 
although the ]uipils have iiinnv times had it brouglit 
to their attention. Interest in this really neeessaTTi' 
phase of selmol activity seems to he declining just at 
the point where tlie work of so many years should come 
to fruition. 1 would make a strong plea for a larger 
chorus of tlHUonghly dt'termincd workers, lest we retro- 
grade in this important subject. 

The great value of music as a serious study in the 
schools of the connlry is rapidly becoming recognised. 
Probably all will admit its usefulness as an inspiring 
diversion and he glad to have the j'onng people acipiirc 
a certain amount of proficiency in the ai't, while i|uiic 
unaware of its exceptional value as mental discipline. 

We tenaciously retain certain other studies largely 
for this purpose when their value from this point of 
view alone tnay not be nearly as great as that of a 
systematic course of properly interpreted sight singing. 

A few words as to what is involved in an adequate 
sight rendition of a composition in several parts may 



ClTr OF BU'it.^Nt)

assist iu making this point clear ; First, every note of 
each part must be correct as to pitch ; second, must have 
correct time value; third, must have proper dynamics: 
fourth, must be in sympathy and balance with other 
parts; fifth, mu.st be of good tone quality. As all of 
these thought processes involving the use <)f tlie eye, ear. 
and voice as well as the emotional nature, take place 
simtdtaneously, we have a well-ntg!i perfect subject for 
the exercise of the mental faculties. This invaluable 
utilitarian phase of the study of music is, however, of 
secondary importance to a reasonable knowledge of the 
Art for the beauty and pleasure which it brings to the 
world. 

In cltising this report I would like to thank all the 
teachera for their friendly assistance, and remind par- 
ents of the necessity of their co-operation in urging 
their children to do more earnest work in this important 
study. 

Respectfully submitted,

Report of the Supervisor of 
Drawing 



To David B. Loi-lcr, Sii/n riiiti iiiU iif of Schimls: 

Tht' n?poii of tlic Supervisor of Urawhig for the 
ycfir lfl12-lii is iicit-hy pn-senled. 

'I'lu' course in drawiug for the past year has followed 
the S81H« lines as heretofore. While the aims of the 
I'oui-sp f'ontimie to ite tlie same, the problctiis prcsc^nted 
vary in siilijeet matter and in method. This year an 
attempt is lieiiig made to correlate the work in the 
upper gnides with the si-wiiig and manual training, the 
)ii'ol>li'iiis heiiij^ worked out on pjijter in the drawing 
classes iind applied in the sewing and manual trniiiing 
idas-ses. If this can Ih' satisfaetority done, it will he n 
lieiiefit to all three courses. 

Last spring, the Teacher Training Cla.ss came under 
the instruetton of the superviKor for its drawinjr. This 
made it neei'.s.sary for thi' supervisor to drop sill teaeh- 
ing in the [irintary grades. The teaching in grades 
one to four is now carried on hy tlu' grade teachers under 
supervision vvitii nioiulily teachers' meetings where the 
outlines for the work are considered and illustrated, 
(h'eat credit is t[m' these Icaehers for the re.sulls ol>- 
Iriineil. 

This year the inerea.sed interest in mechanical draw- 
ing in the Eigh Seliool made necessary the formation 
of seven divisions instead of six. The freehand work 
in the High School will remain nnsJitisfactory for the size 
of the sehont and the ability of the pupils as long as 
aceounuodations ttrc st) poor and so Htlle opportunity is

given to the pupils to elect the subject. All who iuti-nd 
tfl teach should study drawing throughout their High 
School eoui-se and those who study mechanical drawing 
should have an of)portuuity for work in freehand. 

An exhibit of flie drawing of the public schools was 
held last spring in the Dana School building, it would 
gratify pupils an<l teachers if parents and friends would 
inspect more than in the past the work shown at these 
amnial exhibitions. 

The last exhiliit, with the jiddition of work from 
tlie fall term, was displayed at the time of the meeting 
of the State Teachers' Association. Thanks is dttc 
teaciiers. pupils antt janitor, who a.ssistcd in [ihicing the 
Rntland and other exhibits at tlie Dana Building and 
who took cimrge of rooms and n-ssisted visitors there 
iluring the {'onveiitiou. 

The work of all who help lo make results possible 
is greatly ap]ireeiated. The ready and intelligent co- 
operation of the grade teaehei-s and the willing respou.'te 
of the pupiii, are a source of gratification to the super- 
visor and of proiit to the schools. 

Jn closing the .supervisor wi.shes to cxjn-ess her sin- 
cere appreciation of the kindly personal interest re- 
cently shown in so many ways.

Tlic work in the High School this year consists of 
simple construction and furniture making, interspei-sed 
with a brief eourae in tlie niatliematics involved. 

it is our hope that siiflieii-nt equipiueut may be

that the High School class may have an opportunity 
to get a fn-oader knowledge of this ini[5ortant kind of

systems in other progressive cities. 

In closing, 1 wish to emphasize the need its the near

The time given to the IJoini'.^i(! Science work is 
very short and in order that the theory ns well as the 
praetieal elements may he studied, the ela.sses are asked 
to do some outside reference work. 

Although the classes receive a large percentage of 
value from llie work as it timr is. if ehanges were made 
so that th<' elementfiry pi'ine.iides of hotli physie.s find

Report of the Principal of 
Teacher Training Course 



Ti> fhiriil II. L/ii ki . Su))< r 'niii H<h »l <if Srliiutlit : 

Aeeonling to retpiest, I am snimiitling a report of 
the work of the Teacher Training Class. 

There are few enterprises worth essaying hut what 
pa.ss through a crucial stage, and the work of the 
TeaehiT Training Coursi' is no cxi-eptioii to thi.s [irin- 
ciple. 

Thrjugh the state niagnanimonsly endows this course, 
it, nevcrtlielesK, jnst as Inticxihly hinds it ahoiit with 
legal retjuirements as to iiumliers. Wliile it is not diffl- 
eull to sense the significance of the law's rulings and 
while jjrohahly few high school authorities would feel 
justitied in discoutirniing a (course because only nine 
retpiesteil it, yet the opportunity to train for the im- 
portatU work of teaching is denied as many aspiring 
applicants if fortune does not pi-opitiously increase that 
nuinlicr hy at least one, 

S(mie modification of the law has hci-n made, how- 
ever, in the preseiu as.semhly so that the (picstion of 
legality tnay not he sin'h a hui'uing laje in tin- future 
history cf flu- traitiiiig work. The course may he given 
for eight, and llu' town or city receives eipuil aid frorii 
the State; or it may lie retained for a srnaUer niimher 
and the .State aid is cDrresjiondingly diminished. 

The enrollment has nuiohercd nine in the class 
this year.

ANNUAL EEPOBT 



The work has been planned to include the subject 
mattc'i' ri't|ufr<'(I hy tlu> Stjiti.^ in much the wa.v it was 
i-arriod on Ifist yoar. The woi-k cunsists of rvvifWH of 
I'Diniiion SflionI liraiiches, metliods of tftn-hinj? tliese 
hranches, pHvehoIogy, Vermont sf.-liool law, gcliool uiau- 
agenifut, Siri-icultuiv and iliiily work in observation and 
practice. 

Tlie training class in Rutland is pwuliai-ly happy 
in haviniu' a prinuiry model sciiool cotislslinK of the first 
two gi'adi>s in which the beginning teaehei-s observe and 
practice. The worlc in these grades is in ehartre of an 
experienced primary tivic-hiT aii<l lite iiiemhei-s of the 
class have the advantage of seeing tlie supervisor's and 
the mo<h>l leaeher's iiielhtids in these—in many ways- 
most iiiiiiortaiil grades. 

'i'hi' work has hecn taken nji this yrar witfi iiu 
earnestness and spiril sneh as one welcomes in all work 
Iiiil whii-h is indis()ensabli' to success in work that leads 
to ei I nipping a neophyte for assinning the varied re- 
sponniliililirn that mnst nei^ds come to every tcai-her. 
wht-tluT she is placed in the one-room school or at the 
head of an extensive .school system. 

hi folhnvinir up the work of the mcndicrs of 
till- class thai 1 rained hist year. 1 have been interested 
and gratifieil. While it is ditlicnit at this time to give 
thi'ir work aii adetiuatc estimate the eonsen.sus of 
opijuons among superinli-ndent.s is. I find, the following: 
it is thf I'xecptiou atnong the trained leaehers who fails 
to make a success from the very start, widle it is the 
exception among untrained teachers who does satisfac- 
tory work ill her first school. In the greater nuudier of 
cases these young womeji with one year's training have 
succeeded experienced tcaehcrs and have received the 
mme eomiH'nsation as tln-ir predi'cessor-s. In two eases 
the salary was inereased after ihc fall tcria. 



CITT OF BXTTLAND 



In closing let nie say that I trust that the novelty 
of the whole system may not deter the people of the 
town from taking an interest in retaining a cour.se that 
is franght with benefits for them and those o£ the 
iH'ighboriug communities. If the advantage of having 
the course giveu in your schools was not merely a saving 
of one teacher's salary and, possibly, th« sulMitnte'.s 
salary- — not to mention thi' ine.ttimalile valui' of the ele- 
vating indnence of a ehiss llutt !ias the ideals of a 
teacher as a goal, 1 would umke an appeal on the ground' 
of a crying need from your neighboring ecmniiunities 
from which sources the citizens of youj' towns and i-ities 
are recruited, and whose need Ls recognized but not met 
in any better way than by smding a teju-hcr in symjiatliy 
with the eommunity among llicm In instruct and inspire 
them with a sense of theii- advatitages: to teach theia 
to know the possibilities; of themselves and llicir environ- 
ment, arul to inspire them with a willingness In make th<' 
most of both. 

This, in cjntome, is the ideal of the couisc for 
trained teachers for rural peoples. It has some pnih- 
lemg still to ad.iiist and solve, hut I believe i( is render- 
ing valuable service to the State.

K-'iriiiiliitif tile easi'fi reporteil above as liaviug li'pal 
itud reawiijjble excuses, 1 liiitl that ffiese absences were 
due largely to ilitiess, an epidcniie of eohls and, in turge 
part tile snifdl-pnx sem-e. 

From my observation I should sny tliat the [iriiici[)aJ 
causes of truancy are the so-etilleil attractions to 1"' found 
iir tile moving picture stiovv.s and pool rooms of Hi'" I'ily. 
While tlieiv is nothing inliereiitl>' del riiiientfd in I'biidren 
frequenting sttch resorts under proper cnnditiotis outside 
school hours, parents and guardians slionld with- 
hold jiermission (hiring sehool houi's. While tht^ educa- 
tional [)OH.sildlities of moving pictnn-s ninst at onee he 
recognized, fliere is little (|Hestioii that the average 
rejiresentalioris are of doubtful vahie to sclionl jinpils, if 
not positively harmful. 

One of the prolific causes of truaney in former 
years has heen a lack of suitable elotliing; at all events 
it was the eaiisiT of materially redun-d sclioel aticndnm-e. 
I take pleasure in reporting that through the thought fnl 
eare of certain charitably di.spnsed laiJies, a fond nf about 
$400 was placed at my disposal to siij>]dy clothing needs. 
This fund was administered with (he greatest care, e.x-

penditures being made only when donations of elothiog 
were not possible, but regardless of all this, about $200 
were I'eqtiired to meet the demands. It is hoped that the 
relief so wisely afforded by the donors of the fund will, 
in the near future, completely eliminate the lack of 
clothing Rs a cause of reduced sehool atteudaJice. 

Bespectfully submitted,

Auditors' Report. 



To the Honorable City Council: 

The Audilnrs for the year 1912 woukl respectfully 
report that they have umHted the books of She eity i.'lerk 
and treasurer, overseer of the poor, eoustaiile and col- 
lector, superinten<l(-nt of schools, nnd Hinkiag fumi com- 
missioners, for the year euditig Dweuiher 1912. 

Wo find that tht* hooks in all (h'i»artmeijls have 
been kept in an amirate and Imsinesslike manner, and 
all money received seems to have heeii entered to the 
proper department, and there appears on file paid eity 
warrants properly made ont and duly authorized for 
all money paid out, and the cash halanee shown as on 
hand is verified by said vouchers as being correct. 

For a statement of the receipts and disbursements, 
we refer yoii to the detail report of the treasurer, which 
we have verified. 

We find liahilitie.s coiitraeted for during the year in 
excess of appropriation : 

School Dept. ineUuling payroll $4,174 60 
Less easli on hand 223 29 

$3,951 31 

The expenditures for general aeeount of the city 
exceeded the reeeipls by $4,866.48. 

The receipts in the water department have exceeded 
the expenditures to tlit^ amount of $19,297.88, aud this* 
Bmoimt is on liuiid iu cash io ihe credit of that depart- 
ment.

We would respectfully call your attention to a few 
ehun^e-s, which, in our opinion, are <lesirable in order to 
put the books of the city into such condilion thut they 
will at all times show the actual financial status of the 
city aa rcganls ils Hssets iind liabilities. 

The amlitors arc din^clcil by charter to make such a 
statement in their annaal report, hut no data are avail- 
able on the books of the city from which such a state- 
ment can be compQed. 

There should be made an authorixed appraisal of 
our water anrl .sewer system, ymldic buildinp?. permanent 
machinery, tools and s«ppli'\s of all kiud.s, thus having 
on the books of the eity an intelligent and approximately 
aeeurate .statement of the assets. 

There is tarried ou the books of Ihe city treasurer 
as an asset of tfie eity an a<;cumnlation of accounts re> 
eeivable dating Viack to the orparii/.alion of the eity, 
and amounting approxiuiately to $;HltKI. Tlicse are 
absolutely of no value as aai a.ssei, being uneoUi-etibie, 
many of theni having outlawed, iiiid in some cases parties 
against wliom the accounts stiiUil are dead and their 
estates have been settled. We iveommend that the treas- 
urer be relieved of these items at once by your direction. 

We reeomiiicnd that the sinking fund commissioners 
keep a separate account with the water fund so that 
their books will show at all times the amount available 
for redi tiiption of bounds of thai ilepartnu-nt.
